Christmas Trivia: Christmas in Italy I grew up in a large Italian family. My grandparents adapted their traditions when they immigrated to the U.S. and those of us who are still here carry on, passing those traditions down to our families. I thought it would be fun to "test" you on the Christmas customs of Italy. Good luck...or, buona fortuna!
